The ’Wine Cup.
Young man, that cup of sparkling wine.
Just lifted to thy lip !
Heed well the fate that may be thine
If that vile draught j*>u sip j
A maniac’s death, a drunkard’s grave
In thoughtless mirth you madly brave.
A prison’s gloom, a felon’s name,
A murderer stained with blood,
A life of woe, a death of shame,
I see within its purple flood;
Drink, then, that cup of sparkling wine,
Young man, and these may all be thine.
The widow’s wail, the orphan’s cry,
The frenzied maniac’s yell.
The bloated cheek, the blood-shot eye
Are all within the wine-cup’s spell ;
It flings o’er life a rayless gloom,
And kills for aye beyond the tomb.
Then taste no more the sparkling cup,
An adder’s tooth is in the wine ;
A simoon’s blast to wither up
All hope of bliss that may bo thine ;
Rut as a serpent, from thee throw
The cup that brings but shame and woe,

and had a very cordial reception by the

in procession to the Choice Hotel. Our
stay in Rome was limited to about three
hours, but we made the most of it.
Rome, like its namesake across the seas
is “beautiful for situation,” and is an ac¬
tive, bustling place, and contains about
8,000 inhabitants. It has a nail factory,
rolling mills, flour mills, iron foundries,’
and several other manufacturing estab¬

story is, that Gen. Straight, a X?nion
officer, who was in command of 800 well
mounted and disciplined cavalrymen,
could have taken the town with compar¬
ative little bloodshed, as at that time
there were loss than 800 men stationed
there. But the general, in reconnoiter-
ing the place, discovered nought but
earthworks on every hand, and sup¬
posing the oity to be fortified beyond all
possibility of being taken, he surrendered
his entire force to the Confederates,
thereby letting the. golden opportunity
Wo lmd a splendid banquet at the
Choice Hotel, followed by speeches,
toasts, <Sic. Though our stay in Rome
was so brief, it was very pleasant, and
the line reoeption extended to our party
will long bo remeuiberod, and we trust
that the hopes of the citizens concerning
the future growth and prosperity of their
beautiful city will be fully realized.
At 9 p. m. we left Rome for Atlanta,
running along the banks of the
Etowah river for quite a distance. At
Kingston wo changed oars, and halting
there about Ten minutes, some of our
party, always ready for a little sport, in¬
duced a couple of juvenile Ilamitoa to
give an, exhibition of an old-timed double
jig to the harmonious sounds of a pair of
“digatalis,” vigorously applied to the
knees of the musicians.
Although we did not arrive at Atlanta
till about 1 a. m. the next morning, many
of the citizens were at the depot to wel¬
come tis. The “Gate City” threw wide
open her gates* and we were escorted to
the Kimball House, which is one of the
linest we have evor seen. The arcade
was brilliantly illumined, which, to¬
gether with the fountain, flowers and
birds, produced a very tine effect. At¬
lanta is the Capital of the State, and
contains about 40,000 inhabitants. It
looks more like a Northern city than
any wo have seen South. In fact, we
were told that it was built maiuly by
Northern capital, and many of its most
prominent buaiuesH meu are Northern¬
ers. The stores and public buildings are
mostly of brick, and they have a very
solid ami substantial apjauirance. At¬
lanta is a very important business cen¬
ter, and is called the “Gate City” to the
South, ami has five railroads centering
It will be remembered by most of our
readers that from Atlanta Gen. Sherman
commenced his famous “March to the
Sea.” Before leaving he took the pre¬
caution to burn most of the city, there
being hardly enough buildings Jett to
shelter 5,000 people; but in riding
through the oity we discovered scarcely
a mark of the desolation.

Too much of the legislation for the past
seven or eight years, lias beon based
upon the ground that wo are rebels and
traitors. Put yourself in my place. We
are called rebels for doing what we
thought right and our duty. We should
learn charity for others. We ought not
to think any the less of others, for think¬
ing different from us. If you think I
am a rebel, it is your right; I think dif¬

Perhaps if I had been horn North, I
might have been a free-soiler. Perhaps
if Charles Sumner had been born South,
he would have been a secessionist! I
couldn’t help being bom in the South.
If a Chinaman eats rats, let him do it.
I love the South : her traditions, her
dead, her living and her future. I op¬
posed secession more earnestly than you
did, perl laps, and had greater obstacles
than you. Each man is entitled to en¬
joy is own opinion, without interfering
with the rights of his neighbors. Massa¬
chusetts knows better her wants than
any other State, and the same is true of
Georgia, We have four millions of hu¬
man beings in our midst entitled to
civil rights. Looking to the interest of
the future, I thank God there is not a
slave in America to-day. (Great ap¬
plause.) Our interest is to enlighten
and elevato them, because wo are to be
affected by the power they exert. All
we ask of you is, please don’t fetter and
embarrass us. We better understand
what is necessary to lift them up and
make them skilled laborers instead of
ignorant ones. The great ruling pur¬
pose of Federal legislation seems to be
to “keop down the rebels.” Remember
that while wo are down wo want to be
considered loyal. We are willing to
take the Constitution as you have amend'
ed it, and start from the standpoint you
designated, in the race of progress and
prosperity. When you see us v iolate
that Constitution, then interpose.
The people who caiue here from the
North, to got into power, because they
could not get into power there, mis-
repesontod us to retain that power in
their grasp. Go back and tell your friends
that sixty-four of you have traveled
through the South without seeing, hear¬
ing or smelling a lvu-klnx ! If I should
visit the North, and inflame a peoplo
living in your midst against you to a
point of considering you their foes,
wouldn’t you Ku-klux me ? [Cries of
yes.] If you didn’t I wouldn’t have any
respect for you.
Until quite recently the men repre¬
senting the South in Congress possessed
no sympathy with us. I can forget the
stripes of Manassas, the surrender at
Appomattox, although it came so heavy
to me, for I did wish my side to succeed,
but I can’t forget the carpet-bagger !

T AKING MEDICINE.—There is an inherent
predisposition to take something which is re¬
garded as medicine, by a majority of people in
all countries and climates. If they are not
dosed to their satisfaction by physicians, patent
medicines, nostrums, and above all, pills, have
such irresistible charms they indulge in tho lux-
From PAPER to
ury of prescribing for themselves. Mediciiie-
taking, therefore, from its universality in this
country, is a disease. That fact is made use of
to supply the enormous demand, by extensive
manufacture# of all imaginable compositions.
Vast fortunes are thus accumulated in .keeping
pace with the general cravings for physic. The
more severely drastic, the better it is liked. If
itteara the bowels with extreme violence, it is an
evidence of its utility to the mass of medicine-
takers. The best physician is one so skillful in
his profession as to decide when it is not neces¬
sary to take medicine ; and his hardest duty to
make his patients believe it. Dr. L. H. Sprague
makes a specialty of treating all kinds of cnronic
diseases by electrical and mechanical means
without medicine ; but does not discard its use.
On the contrary he calculates to use all known
remedies that can be for the benefit of his pa¬
tients. Thirty years experience, seventeen in
general practice, and thirteen in institutions for
the treatment of chronic diseases, where he has
had from fifty to three hundred patients under
his care all the time, lias given him a large expe¬
rience. Call end see him at Room 33, Gray’s

Theodore Tilton’-« complete statement,
con taming grave chafe;.-s made under
oath i.s now published. It contains
many letters anil is far too long for our
columns. Of it the Utica Herald says :
“The freo-love theories so deftly woven
into the statement in extenuation of Aas.
Tilton’s guilt, and indirectly as excuse
for Mr. Tilton, in continuing to recog¬
nize her as his wife, will not be accepted
by the public. It may bo good of him
to offer them in defense of the erring;
it is silly to adduce them in his own jus¬
tification. And so, whether the state¬
ment is truth or fiction, Mr. Tilton is, to
say the least, placed in an unfavorable
light by his revelations.
“Never were charges balder, or more
threatening of disaster. How will Mr.
Beecher meet them ? It must be remem¬
bered that he sought the investigation
which has brought them out. His re¬
quest was not such as we would expect
from a man conscious of the flood of
condemnation he invited. That request
gave strength to the confidence reposed
in him by countless thousands. It was
expected that Mr. Tilton would fail to
make out a case, that Mr. Beecher would
come forth bearing mark of humanity,
doubtless, but not of unpardonable crim¬
inality. The charitable hopes and belief
of the people aro not justified thus far.
If Mr. Beecher cannot refute the case
made against him, he stands condemned.”
A Tribune reporter lias interviewed
Mr. Cleaveland, who said Mrs. Tilton
and Mr. Beecher are preparing a state¬
ment which will be submitted to tne
committee to-day, and which will satis¬
factorily explain all correspondence be¬
tween them, and all other matters con-

Future, from «
M*. Editor :—With your permission
we would like through the columns of
the Indkpkn dent to express our send
menu upon the above subject. We have
no “ax to grind,” and therefore wish to
•peak plainly, and without f ar or favor.
It is not the object of this article to
dive deeply into the past history of our
town or village, that history perhaps
being as well understood by the majority
of your readers as by the writer. There¬
for* we shall confine ourselves to the
present and future, with but a passing
fiance at the past history of Mexico.
Our locutioa is healthful and beautiful.
Nestled among the hills of a section of
country, rich in agricultural resources,
populous with a class of people of super¬
ior intelligence, generally wealthy and
benevolent, and with very little foreign
element intermingled, wo are certainly
fortunate in our surroundings. Nature
has provided us with water power suffi¬
cient, if utilised, to make our protecting
hills echo with the clang of the hammer,
and our quiet valley to resound with the
hum of busy spindles.
Twenty threw years agoMexico becamo
an incorporated village, -without side¬
walks even on her main streets, without
mean* of extinguishing fire, with poor,
dimly-lighted, low-roofed wooden build¬
ings for stores and shops, with a dilapi¬
dated plank road and two or threo coaches
ft day to connect with the outside world.
But tho newly elected “City Fathers”
entered upon the flhjiep of their office
with that vigor which is a characteristic
pf the managers of new enterprises.
Jk»4 noon, not only sidewalks of an ac-
aomauxlftting width made their appear¬
ance upon the principal streets, but other
•nd greater things wc^e accomplished.
A lot was purchased, an engine house
built —mn engine, hoee, hook and ladder
outfit obtained, and an effective lire
brigade organized. Old utreets were
pawed and new ones surveyed and loca¬
ted, and many of the beautiful trees,
whose cooling slmdo refreshes us to-day,
were planted. Thus since 1851 matters
h»ve progressed. Step hy step, little by
little, tho spirit of improvement has
manifested itself. Twenty years ago tho
traveler who passed up M ain street would
have “turned up his nose iu disgust,” as
he jolted along oyev the half rotten plank-
raed, at. the appearance of theplaee,-where
pxlay be might lufTnlre on either band a
fuW of poatly p#d substantially built
jftorea and offices.
Steam and tho “iron horse,” too, have
•omo to our relief, and are bringing us
daily double the number of peoplo, double
the amount of wheat, corn, flour, feed
and merchandise, and carrying awuy
double tho ftiRoput; of butter, cheese,
hay, hops gud potatoes, that all the
ooaches and teams of those palmy, planky
days could possibly have moved.
Our villago stands to-day, without
doubt, one of the most beautiful and de¬
sirable within the limits of the Empire
flt&to, as a place of residence. It has
dXcelltut b< iionln, mid tasty, roomy and
convenient church edifices, Its hotels
are pleasantly located and exceedingly
well-kept. Its thickly shaded streets iu-
vito to lengthy rambles within its bor¬
ders ; and. for those who object to being
ea to such limits, a drive of from
miles, by as nmnv dittWam.
for the surplus productsof farm, garden and
dairy, and a consultation of the shipping
books of our wsrthy Station Agent will
convince tho most skeptical that very
little of those surplus products go con¬
trary to nature. In fact, it is generally
conceded among farmers and dairymen
that big ig a better market than either
Oswego or Syracuse. Better from the
fact that their sales net them more mon¬
ey and that our dealers are always ready
Thus far all is well. With this im¬
portant factor, our merchants ought to be
doing a thriving business. The farmer
who gets cash for his hay, hops, butter
and cheese in Mexico ought not to feel
compelled to go to Oswego or Syracuse
to purchase provisions and clothing, or
to feel that by so doing he can save
enough to pay for his time and expenses.
“Why is this V Let us see if we can
not discover why our merchants, with
cheaper rents, cheaper lights, cheaperfuel
andchea. per help,cannot compete withtheir
brother tradesmen of the city, with their
high rents, gas and water bills, and gen¬
A stroll about town and a peep into
some of our business places may help us
to solve this knotty problem. Here is a
store purporting to sell groceries and
provisions. Stepping in, we find, in ad¬
dition to the above, boots and shoes,
drugs and medicines, yankee notions,
confectionery, glass ware, wooden ware,
tkc., &c. The clerk (there is but one
present when we make the visit) is en¬
gaged in putting up pork, or lard or cod¬
fish, or kerosene, or some other equally
necessary but not over-nice-to-iiaiidle
commodity, for the maintainance of bone
and muscle, when there enters a trio of
young ladies. Of course they do not
come for any of the vulgar things above
named, Faugh ! they never bother their
heads with such tbipgs, A pair of
gaiters, a spool of thread, or a crochet
needle, is common enough for them. Our
clerk is not in the most enviable of situ¬
ations. The ladies are in haste, surely,
but lie must needs apply soap and water
to liis digits to remove the odor of fra-1

was possible, tliat it might not disappoint

▲ fttrango Story.
Several weeks since a man called at
Mr. Wyman’s house in Orwell and asked
for refreshment. 'He said his name was
John Gorilt, of Montreal, and statod he
had been hunting in the moat remote re¬
cesses of the North Woods. One day
while looking for game ho discovered
the skeleton of a bear by the aide of a
log. The decaying flesh still clung to
the bones and an old rusty knife was
sticking into one of tho ribs. Directly
on the opposite side he found the skele¬
ton of a man. The clothes ho wore were
in tatters, his rifle was upon the ground
near by together with a powder horn
nearly empty. In his pockets were found
a few bullets aud a letter. This was so
badly stained and tom that only a small
portion of it was legible.
The rifle and letter Wyman saw as
they were in the possession of Gorilt.
The fornpor was entirely valueless, being
badly rusted, and the lock would not
work. The legible portion of the letter
seemed to indicate it to be one the de¬
ceased had written to his parents, ask¬
ing that more ammunition be sent to
him at Lorraino Huddle. The name
could not be found. The appearance of
tho two skeletons indicated that there
had been a fearful struggle between the
hunter and his brute antagonist, which
resulted in the death of both .—Pulaski

The cottage services conducted in the
Episcopal form by the Rev. Mr. Hall, of
Mexico, and held at the hotel of J. B,
Da vis,aro interesting and instructive, and
8u SS eB t a few thoughts for consideration.
1st, tho place; a hotel. It may seem
stiailge to those who are accustomed to
associate with the name hotel, profanity,
drunkenness, gambling and everything
else that is bad. But it is otherwise with
those who regard a hotel as a comforta¬
bly quiet home for the weary traveler.
And if our hotels are not such, it is be¬
cause the better class of people shun
them and allow the bad element to con¬
Let the elevating, yo3,sacred, influences
such as are connected with the services of
Mr Hall be held in our hotels, and they
would be the better for it.
Let the business men of Mexico villago
spend some of their leisure tinie at the hotels
of the village, not to compromise themselves
but to cheer and assist tho keepers of our
public houses in well-doing,and there will
be less cause of complaint than there
now is. Let our hotels bo patronized in
a virtuous way by the virtuous and wise,
and tho vicious will retire from them,
aud the men who cater -to tho public
will be glad of the exohange,
2d, Tho manner of service. Though
we are* not Episcopal, and are not con¬
fined to their forniB in our worship, yet
there is a sublimity,a richness,and sweet-

not speak of their accurate time or har¬
mony,as it was first-rate. But we asked
ourselves the question, will those sweet
voices ever be heard in blaspheming or
the low ribald songs of the low grogcry.
We hope not.
4th, The administration of the rite of
baptism by sprinkling of the two young¬
est children of Mr. aud Mrs. Davis. Of
course we could not see how those little
ones could believe and exercise faith in
Jesus Christ, and are not a believer in
infant sprinkling, but we could see an
appropriateness in the father and mother
to thus publicly and solemnly promise to
bring up those children in tho nurture
and admonition of the Lord, and do
heartily wish that every parent in the
land would make and koep such a vow.
Y e learn that the boys who camped
out two or three days at Mexico Point
wuth Rev. Mr. Hall, had varied experi¬
ences. Of course it was most delightful
to go and they had agrand time, perhaps
all the grander now for the things that,
not quite so relishable then, made heroes
They pitched their tent, adorned it
with green boughs, &c., being detailed in
squads for each branch of the service,
and working and marching under mili¬
tary rule. But on the first night the
musquitos were so musical ancl fond of
y oung blood that the boys found no sleep
till alter midnight, and they were awake
about four o’clock in the morning. Then
some of them went fishing and had won-
derful suceess. Wo suppose the sports
o. “ llat day made them forget the hard
night—-they had plenty to do, plenty to
cat, and saw their friends.
But another night came on. How
imich they slept we aro not informed,
but the noise of the waves was loud, for
the wind, blowing hard, had made them
tumultous. By and by gvor went their
tent, and a scene of indescribable con-
lu3ion ensued. The little fellows had to
extricate themselves, or be extricated, as
best they could, their clothing was miss-
ing, and some had to go without it to
the house, and some thought they should
never see home again. They returned
next day, and we imagine those boys
j vI10w wbafc home is, what the care of
mother and a good bed at night are, bet¬
ter than they ever did before.

On Sunday last we had the pleasure of
attending the monthly meeting of the
Scriba Sunday School Union, which was
held in the Lansing M. E. Church. Not¬
withstanding the intense heat, there was
large attendance—the edifice being
ci-owded. Before the Union exercises
some time was spent on the day’s lesson
by the school at Lansing, which is super¬
intended by Mr. II. L. Hart, who is deeply
interested in the Sunday School cause,
and muoh boloved by both teachers and
I pupils. The school is, judging from what
wo saw and heard, one of the best-con¬
ducted in tho county.
At p. m., the exercises of the Town
Union commenced. After ringing and
prayer, tho members of the different
schools present, united in one class (led
by the President of the Union, Mr. S.
Rhodes) studied for a brief period the
International Lesson for the day. This
exercise was one of much interest, and
both the conductor and class showed
that they they had studied the lesson
before tho hour of assembling. At
the close of tho lesson addresses were
delivered hy Rev. Mr. George and one
or two other gentlemen. Mr. George’s
address was very apposite and instructi ve,
and was listened to with much interest.
The addresses were interspersed with
some very flue singing by the choir and
the children, which greatly added to the
pleasure of tho occasion.

tioned cannot fail to be beneficial to the

Before closing this notioe, wo will say
a word in praise of the enterprise and

progressive people, and wo trust their
example will be followed by many other

A Sandy Creek mail writes to the
Utica Herald : “Five hundred thousand
dollars of tho second mortgage bonds of
the Syracuse Northern RR., have re¬
cently been transferred to the -Rome,
Watertown & Ogdensburg RR. Co., and
the latter have taken substantially tho
control of the road. We understand the
bonds brought ninety cents. A vory
general feeling of dissatisfaction is man¬
ifested by our citizens at tho manner in
which they have been treated, and they
are now gratifying their desire for a
‘new departure’ to tho extent of an
eighty thousand dollar bonded debt,
which the above transfer, it is thought,
makes it certain they willhave to pay it.”
The Syracuse Standard says that a
new depot for the Syracuse Northern
RR. will be built iu connection with the
N. Y. Central depot in that city. Also
that the new owners of tho second mort¬
gage bonds of the Northern have placed
their bonds in the possession of Dudley
P. Phelps, Esq., with directions to col¬
lect tho overdue interest forthwith, or
in default of payment to foreclose the
mortgages immediately. This will bring
matters to a crisis, as there is already
over eighteeu months’ interest due, and
no funds to pay with.

We hope our New England friends
will see the wisdom of living up to the
spirit, if not the word, of that letter of
ed. We want it to be in the country,
with no rent to pay. We know there is
some prejudice against the management
in general, but it is doubtful if it would
improve in other hands, and the reasons
that might be brought up against it are
very simple, and not worthy of argu¬
ment. We entreat the mutes to put
away their prejudice and lend a helping
hand, not being satisfied to send a little
sum and then forget all about it, but re¬
membering the purpose for which their
money goes, and contributing as much
and as often as they can.

Last week the young ladies who are
to graduate this year, enjoyed, through
the courtesy of their thoughtful matron,
Mrs. H. P. Peet, a fine drive thr-ough
the Central Park and neighboring avenues.
The High Class was examined on
Thursday by Dr. Chapin, principal of a
school in New York, and it was a bril¬
liant success, reflecting much credit upon
the retiring teacher, Mr. O. D. Cooke.
At this writing (Monday) all tlie classes
have been examined with varying suc¬
cess, the old and energetic teachers ac¬
quitting themselves well generally.
Mr. Burnet’s school-room has been
draped in moiu*ning, the chair in which
he for years sat and labored is shrouded
in black, as is also the slate from which
he was accustomed to explain the daily
lessons, and on it is writtCTi the resolu¬

Last Sunday Dr. Peet preached the
closing sermon of the term. It was very
impressive and from his text: “Be ye
therefore perfect, even as your Father
which is in Heaven is perfect.” The doc¬
tor discoursed eloquently, and the advice
he gave to those who were to leave their
Alma Mater, was especially appropriate
and fitting. Mr. Jacob, of the Kentucky
Institution, was present during the ser¬
vices, as were also most of the resident

his fiiends is having a pleasant time.
the commencement exercises.
A large number of invitations to the
closing exhibition bad been sent out, and
as tlie day was exceptionally fine, a large
number were expected. Nor were we
disappointed, for the one o’clock train
which stopped at the grounds, brought
many from the city, but many more came
in private carriages. A very nice lunch
was served immediately upon the ai’-
rival of the guests, and when it was over
the chapel was soon filled to its utmost
seating capacity. The young, ladies and
gentlemen of the High Class occupied the
platform for about an hour, answering
such questions as the audience cared to
put to them. Ajul while thus engaged,
a young man of remarkable proficiency
in articulation read Tennyson’s Charge
was’doiie, Mr.” iicfity 'D. 1 ■iYesivus tfeliv-

the most striking effect, and winning
new laurels for pantomime. Little
Patrick Bpeftnan set the whole audience
in a roar by bis remarkable powers of
mimicry, and for the hundredth time
murdered and served up the annual
monkey amidst roars of applause.
Rev. Dr. Chapin, Rev. Stephen Tyng,
D. D., and others of the examining com¬
mittee read their separate reports, and
that of Dr. Chapin, as examiner of the
the High Class, was especially interest¬
ing. The diplomas to the graduating
olass were next distributed, and then the
prizes. Miss Maggie T. Bennett, qf Ge¬
neva, N. Y.. took the gold medal, the
third that has, within ten years, been
carried off by pupils from that locality.
Miss Julia Whalen, of Wyoming, took
the prize for drawing, though it is
worthy of remark that the productions
of Miss Bennett’s pencil disputed for a
long tinjo the prize with the winner.
Master Albert J. Andrews received the
Cary Testimonial, a prize annually offer¬
ed for goocl conduct and scholarship.
This year it was in the form of an ele¬
gantly bound copy of the Holy Bible.

Mexico, April 15, 1874.
The village of Mexico has in its vicin'
ity and witliin convenient driving dis¬
tance several lovely spots where people
can go and camp out, swim, row, sail and
fish. One of these places and quite a
favorite with those who love to be near
the waters of Lake Ontario, is Mexico
Point. Thither one day last week, bent
on having a nice little picnic and a good
time, drove the following members of a
little party :
Mrs. Grace J. Chandler, Mrs. H. C.
Rider, Miss H. Augusta Avery, Miss
Anna R. Pimm, Miss Mary E. Tripp,
Masters Lewis C. and Eddie C. Rider,
Misses Grace A. Rider, and Anna A..
Chandler and our Associate, Mr. Seliney,
The day was all that could be desired
and, towards its close, a good deal more.
Arriving at Mexico point, we put up our
horses, and those that wished, got
into boats and took a row for two or
three miles up the stream beneath whose
banks all sorts of good fish were suspected
to abound. We threw three trolling lines
with most temptingly got up baits over
the side of the boat and used all our arts
to try and hook something. But the on¬
ly thing we caught was a medium sized
bass, and he was hauled in by Mr. Rider.
Fishing evidently didn’t pay, so we turn¬
ed our attention to gathering water lilies
with which the stream abounded ; and
we got a big basket full. When we got
back to the point we found that the few
who remained had made good use of our
absence and got ready a tempting lun¬
cheon. We went to help and barring
the upsetting of a can of milk and a few
other trifling accidents everything work¬
ed harmoniously. After the best part of
the good things had disappeared and
we had got thoroughly recreated and
packed up, we drove away to give and
meet what unexpectedly proved to be
the event of the day, viz ;—A surprise
to Mr. and Mrs. L. N. and M. A. J ones.
hot day, and probably no one among the
company was so glad to get under cover
as the horses.
We bad given our surprise, and were
congratulating ourselves that it wasagood
one- But just about tea time the tables
were turned, and what followed was a
surprise, sudden and complete. Hugo
black clouds gathered in the north-west,
the wind rose from a breeze to a hurri¬
cane, the lightning flashed and the thun¬
der rolled ;• the heavens were opened and
the rain fell in torrents. It was no or¬
dinary summer shower, falling suddenly,
and as suddenly passing away, leaving
everything fresh and green; but a storm
of hail and rain that deluged the roads
and plains, and broke down trees and
fences in its impetuous rush. Hailstones
fell as big as your thumb, the black
clouds darkened the sky all night, while
the lightning flashes kept the horizon
ablaze; the thunder peals were loud and
frequent, frightening horses and cattle
and timid folk.
Of course it was out of the question
for us to go back to Mexico that night,
and even had wo thought of so doing, the
hospitable Jones brothers would not
have allowed it. So wo spent the even-
work done the same

tain indenture of mortgage bearing date the 13th
day of November, A. I)., one thousand eight
hundred and seventy-one, to secure the payment
of the sum of sixty dollars, payable one-half
six months from date, and balance one year from

lot No. 79, being the place of beginning, contain¬
ing ten acres of land as surveyed by P. Rea,
Sept. 13th, 1865.
Which said mortgage with the power of sale
therein contained was duly recorded in the Os¬
wego County Clerk’s office, the 20th day of No¬
vember, 1871, at 5 o’clock p. m., in Liber 93 of
mortgages, page 102. And whereas the said
mortgage was, by the said Henry A. Baker, and
the debt intended to be secured thereby,
duly sold, transferred and assigned
June, 17th, 1872, to Samuel H. Stone, Adminis¬
trator, and Rosina G. Downing, Administratrix,
of the estate of Levi Downing, deceased, who
are now the lawful owners and holders of the same.
And whereas there is claimed to be due on
said mortgage at the date of the first publi¬

Mr. Henry WinterSyle, of New York,
stopped at Mexico for a few hours, on his
way to the Belleville Convention, via
Oswego. We were glad to find our dis¬
tinguished friend looking so well and re¬
gretted that his visit was necessarily so
short. When Mr. Syle left for Belle¬
ville he carried our Associate off with
him, and they will write for the New
York papers and the Journal.
Mr. Henry A. Rumrill, of Syracuse,
Secretary of tlie Empire State Associa¬
tion, has been sojourning in New York
for a few months, and it is but until re¬
cently that he returned home. As the
great metropolis is noted for frequent so¬
cial gatherings among deaf-mutes duriDg
the winter, he must have had a very en¬
joyable time, and we hope his health has
also improved a good deal.

instructor, spent a week or two in New

the New York Institution, and though
it was vacation, he yet found a few re¬
maining to make his stay as pleasant as
possible. He was without the services
of his friend, Mr. Reid, who acted the
part of showman in ’72 ; nevertheless we
hope he had a good tiipe ip tl>e metrop¬
olis, and was not made any deafer by
the noise of the Fourth.
Messrs. Thomas Brown and Frank
Read want the Clerc bust to be dedicated
Sept. 2d, so we learn from an editorial in
the Advance. Both these gentlemen are
members of the Executive Committee,
and probably their words have in them
some of the sentiment of that body.
Some of the Institutions open the first
Wednesday in September. That is Sept.
2d. Several who would like to attend,
will bo obliged to stay away on that ac¬
count. The dedication of the Gallaudet
monument took place Sept. 6th, 1854,
simultaneously with the reopening of
the Institutions, and causing the absence
of several distinguished men, among
whom was Dr. H. P. Peet.
But it is not for us to fix the day.
The contractors of the bust and pedestal
will report to the Executive Committee
the date at which they can have the
work done, and the Executive Committee
using its own judgment, and taking all
the circumstances into account, will
give us as convenient a day as it can.

It is always a yepy bpd thing to get
into debt, but once ip a whjie a man
must have money. His resources may
be ample, but ready cash he has not.
What, then, more welcome than the
treasury of a band of friends to which
he can apply for a temporary loan, and
thus be spared tho embarrassment of ap¬
pealing to strangers.
One of the greatest of the benefits of
tho association of deaf-mutes known as
tlie Order of Elect Surds, is the loans
which it, on proper occasions, makes to its
members. The sums taken are generally
small and for a short period, which shows
that the accommodation given is none
the less valuable because it is temporary.
This practice of small temporary loans is
an item of importance all the country
The Order of Elect Surds conducts this
part of its object in a business-like man¬
ner. Good security and interest are re¬
quired in all cases. And during the
eight years of the existence of the asso¬
ciations, while the amount used for loans
has been over $1000 not one cent has
been lost by the failure of members to
make good their notes or the depreciation
qf the security held. It is proper, how¬
ever, to add that the system of loans was
ndt inaugurated till sometime in 1870.

ulation and lip-reading.
At the Aurora school bitt a small num¬
ber can be received at one time, and
hence greater attention can be individ¬

SARAH J. DRUCE,
The Home for Aged and Infirm Deaf-
Mutes has resolved to raise a Building
Fund, and when it has in hand a suf¬
ficient amount, a nice country location is
to be selected, and an ample building
erected thereon. To this end the Board
of Trustees have appointed a Committee
consisting of a number of deaf-mute
gentlemen, of whom Mr. John Carlin is
chairman. Several resident and travel¬
ing agents have been appointed, and
more will be chosen soon in all the St«tfes
of the Union, for it is determined to
push forward the good work with all
Deaf-mutes all over the State may ex¬
pect soon to have a call from one of the
traveling or sub-agents, or to be ad¬
dressed by letter, asking them to con¬
tribute something toward the Fund. In
all such cases we hope there will be no
refusal; a small sum at a time, say five,
ten or twenty-five cents a week can
surely be spared by the majority, and
there are not a few who are able to con¬
tribute more, and we sincerely hope they
will. Of course, it is very improbable
that even a fair proportion of the con¬
tributors will ever see the time when
they must be taken to the Home, still
fortune is fickle ; and disease and acci¬
dent spare no man, and none of us know
how soon or how surely we may need its
sheltering aid. There are at present
half a dozen inmates well cared for, and
